Apple Cinnamon Granola Bars & Just Doing It

We're getting more granola by the day over here... especially now that I've sworn to only make my own granola bars over the ones that come out of a box.

Creamy Cauliflower Dip

One of the biggest lessons I've learned from changing my diet is when you close a door on one food, there's a window that opens.

Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Call me crazy, but sometimes even in the middle of summer a bowl of soup can be quite nice. I had the most amazing summer squash soup on our California road trip (when it's 60 degrees in the evening hot soup doesn't sound as crazy too). Anyway, I loved it so much I decided to try to recreate… Continue reading Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Salmon with Lemon, Dijon and Dill

Salmon is one of my favorite go-to weeknight mains - it doesn't take long to marinate, it cooks quickly and as a bonus I can save a dose of my Omega-3 supplements... The main reason I cook it during the week though is it's not something I usually order out. I'm going to try to… Continue reading Salmon with Lemon, Dijon and Dill
